The Rocketbook App Can Make Animated GIFs!

Turn your drawings into animated GIFs using your Rocketbook notebook and the app!

But first, what is an animated GIF exactly?  According toTechopedia, an animated GIF is “an image encoded in graphics interchange format (GIF), which contains a number of images or frames in a single file and is described by its own graphic control extension.” Basically, it’s a collection of images that loop in order to convey animation. Animated GIFs are a fun feature that will make your handmade sketches come to life. 

So how do you send these animations?

Sending animated GIFs to Google Drive is pretty straightforward, so we’ll share a little bit more about how to send animated GIFs in text messages via iOS Messages.

Setting up the Destination:

1. InDestinations, select an icon, selectChange Destination,and then selectMessages.                                          

2.  Select contact(s) you’d like to associate with the icon and then tap Save.

3.  Under Animation Settings, turn On “Animated GIFs.” 


1. On your Rocketbook pages, mark the icon that you’d like to group together for an animated GIF.  Please note that to in order to have an animation, you’ll need more than 1 scanned page.  Otherwise, it’ll just be a single image.

2.  Scan the pages, tapDone,and thenSend.
3.  iOS Messages will now appear.  TapSend.
4. The person receiving it will now see a looping animated GIF! 

 Give it a shot and send some sketches to your friends.  It’s actually quite fun!  Please note that normal SMS fees may apply.
